               National Academy Museum
Spring 2008 Gala Benefit

                           An Evening of Art and Elegance honoring


 Philip Pearlstein, NA, and artist, received the
 Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award.


                Ira Spanierman, Founder and Managing Director of Spanierman Gallery, LLC,  received an award for his Contribution and Commitment to the Study, Presentation, and

                Exhibition of American Art.


                Annette Blaugrund, former Director of the National Academy, received the Academy’s Honorary Achievement Award in appreciation of her tenure as Director (1997-2007).


                The National Academy Museum and School of Fine Arts was founded in 1825 to promote American art through exhibitions and education; 183 years later that mission endures.  As an honorary association of professional artists, an active museum with an out standing collection of American art contributed by its members, and a dynamic art school, the institution continues to play a vital role in encouraging the practice and appreciation of the fine arts in this country.  Academicians, elected by their peers, are some of America’s most prominent painters, sculptors, architects, and printmakers.


                In fulfilling its mission the Academy presents a regular schedule of exciting exhibitions of art and architecture, as well as educational programs. The Academy’s art school is the oldest in New York and offers a full range of instruction for serious students of all ages, from beginners to accomplished professionals.                                       




 Honorary Gala Chairs:


               Susan Shatter, National Academy President, Will Barnet, NA, Betty Cuningham Gallery, Rackstraw Downes, NA, John Driscoll Phd, Babcock Galleries, Richard Estes, NA, Robert Kushner, NA, Wolf Kahn, NA, David Kapp, NA, Everett Raymond Kinstler, NA, Betty Krulik Fine Art Ltd., Robert Mangold, NA, Sylvia Plimack Mangold, NA, Joan Snyder, NA.


Confirmed Guests (list in formation):


Artists:    National Academician artists Will Barnet, Rackstraw Downes, Richard Haas, Wolf Kahn, Everett Raymond Kinstler, Robert Kushner, Immi Storrs, Joan Snyder, and Greg Wyatt.


 Art Collectors/Philanthropists: Jan and Stephen Abrams, Frederick Baker, Laura and and David Grey, Sharon and Lewis Korman, Arthur Loeb, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Peissis, Paterson Sims, and Lynn and Sy Syms. New York Times art critic Ben Genocchio will also attend.  


Gallerists: Attendees include Gallerists include John Driscoll Ph.D., Babcock Galleries, Betty Cuningham,  Betty Cuningham Gallery, Debra Force, Debra Force Fine Art, Inc. , Jay Grimm, Pace Wildenstien, Betty Krulik, Betty Krulik Fine Art Ltd., Cameron M. Shay, James Graham & Sons;


Captains of Industry: Richard Fishbein, J. Stephen Manolis, Lawrence A. Larose, Esq.


Proceeds benefited the institution’s museum and school.




*The National Academy’s storied past as the former home of industrialist and philanthropist Archer M Huntington and accomplished artist wife, Anna Hyatt Huntington, will come alive as its fabled entryway, hallowed halls, glamorous ballroom, and vaulted exhibition spaces will be transformed into an enchanted setting for a 1940’s themed black and white ball.  Jazz-age swing and ballroom music performed by Cracked Ice will progress throughout the night evolving into a more spirited cutting-edge beat for the younger, after-dinner crowd. In keeping with the Academy’s 183 year-old history as an artist-run institution dedicated to the advancement of contemporary American art, a montage of images of work by legendary National Academicians (NA) ranging from John James Audubon and Winslow Homer, to Chuck Close and Robert Rauschenberg will be projected on flat screens throughout the party. Those wanting closer insight into the life of an NA can even sponsor an artist member to sit with them.


Proceeds from ticket sales benefited the Academy Museum and School. As on of the oldest and most revered artists institutions in the United States, the academy’s dynamic exhibition schedule and active school of fine arts keeps it a vital force in the American art scene.  On view beginning May 29, this year’s 183rd Biennial Non-member Invitational Exhibition  featured 125 works of sculpture, paintings, works on paper and installations that describe some of the fresh and innovative artistic explorations that contemporary American artists are engaged in today.
